Is that one of those uber rare ceramic Unions? If so, you're a lucky man.

The rest look like a mighty fine collection.

The flying brick as pictured above was produced by GZG a long time ago, but im sure there is another company casting and produceing it again these days, but i just cant remember who they are.
I can tell you it was cast in solid resin and as i remember it used to be very heavy indeed. It came in eleven parts the top and bottom main body with three chunky metal landing gears, the two side engines the front turret with a seperate metal gun barrel and the top rear houseing and finally a seperate rear cargo door, thats the history and parts break down to this VTOL Tansporter/Dropship. If anyone know the company thats produceing them again please post there site or shop details up here as id like to get a couple of them again if possible. :) zac

Unless I'm mistaken, Jon (GZG) is still making them. You could email him directly (jon at gzg dot com) and ask. He's normally pretty good about answering emails. He makes a lot of nice figures.

The black one is the 6mm dropship that Jon produces.

Very sharp. I have a couple map scale dropships that I use for scenarios. Almost ashamed to post them though compared to those.
